president obama rather get a deal done on immigration or let the issue fester who the republicans continue to get run at the polls by latino voters? this is "hardball," the place for politics. hey, buddy? oh, hey, flo. you want to see something cool? snapshot, from progressive. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure. >>> massachusetts governor duvall patrick has named a place holder to fill the senate seat of john terry. he'd be the second african-american in the senate. tim scott of south carolina, another appointee is the other. it's the first time in history that two african-americans have served in the senate at the same time. in selecting cowan, governor patrick passed over former congressman barney frank who openly lobbied for the job. cowan will serve until april 30th when massachusetts voters
it matters. so jimmy, president obama taking this issue of immigration on the road today. he did so, though, back in 2011 without a lot of success. but today, dan pfeiffer is tweeting out that the president will applaud the bipartisan senate agreement, saying it's consistent with his long-held view. but jimmy, this bill is not a sure thing in the senate, let alone the house. so explain why there is con flicking uniformity on this. >> well, listen. i think it's great that the six senator who is got up on the podium yesterday and said that they have a framework for an agreement for a framework to get immigration done, is great. the problem is this. the problem is -- and that's a great first step, but you've got to put it down on paper. and once you start putting things down on paper, you actually start writing legislation. and then you ask members to start voting on this legislation, and that's when it gets remarkably murkier in the building behind me. think about it in 2007. you know, you had 22 republicans that are currently sitting in the united states senate today who voted against bush's
of an issue. >> obama is seeking political victory. obama doesn't care about enforcing existing law. so people say why will he enforce anything that is new. >> once again, limbaugh is clearly delusional. one of the reasons we need immigration reform is because there were a record number of deportations last year. president obama has presided over 1.5 million deportations in four years. it took w. eight years to deport 2 million people. but marco rubio still went on air with the peddler of lies to kick obama on immigration. >> obama is not going to be president forever. as long as the next four years may seem, he won't be president forever. we have to write laws with that in mind as well. >> president obama agrees with marco rubio and other senators on almost every aspect of immigration reform. but republicans are not doing this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some of the callers on my radio show who told me how the cu

.m. eastern time. a little more than a week after highlighting the issue during his inauguration speech, president obama laid out his plan for immigration reform. the image of a campaign speech, the president went to north dakota where the hispanic population is 20%. >> the good news is for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. this moment it looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon. that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debating this for a long time. the principles are pretty straight forward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continue k to strengthening security at our borders. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but fo
reform as president obama heads to las vegas to talk about the issue. before leaving, the president about itsestions foreign policy record alongside his secretary of state hillary clinton. that's where we begin this morning with you. we want to hear your thoughts on the role of the u.s. on the world stage. give us a call this morning on the democratic line, the republican line, and the independent. 585-u're outside the u.s., 3883. you can reach us on facebook or twitter or e-mail. good monday morning to you. we want to start with the interview with president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton from last night that appeared on "60 minutes." here's how it played in a couple papers from around the country. here's the new york times headline -- and the culpeper star has -- i want to read you from the story that was in the hill newspaper this morning, the congressional newspaper here in washington. what we want to do now is take you to a clip from last night of that interview. here is president obama. [video clip] >> we helped to put together and lay the groundwork for liberating liby
of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> all right. thanks. president obama says the nation has issued a call to action for congress to tackle the issue of immigration reform. praised leaders for coming up with a framework. but there's a lot to do before meaningful changes can be achieved here. for more on that topic, we turn to our team after experts peter fenn and while jim is away we welcome back phillip stuts. one of the thing we want to start off is the issue of sequestration. we have bigger fish to fry. is that how things are ending up? >> well, you just talked about immigration. this is the biggest issue of the day for our country. so i'm a republican, but i'm disappointed that we're punting the ball down the field. disappointed in president obama that he's punting the ball down the field for a long time. i don't understand why they can't figure this thing out. seems to be consistent with what congress seem to be able to do. >> what happens if you don't go with sequestration is you have to make the tough decisions and that compromises a hard thing to do in a month. and initially the re
of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four years. we are talking about passing a federal budget. republicans in the house trying to force senators to come up with a spending plan will go without pay. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill with more. when we take up the debt ceiling deal? reporter: the senate is likely to take up the bill some time next week. they are required to pass a budget by april 15. bottom line, fiscal conservative senators are loving it. >> they have really written some good budgets, tough budget that they have defended, but the democratic senate has
the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this country were changing dramatically. they figured that out and how to get people to the polls and republican
's article latest issue touches on president obama's inaugural challenge on climate change in the end, no matter what kind of deal the administration makes with china, the harsh truth, it be enough to diffuse the climate crisis unless he takes a bold stance and solution like cap and tax or carbon tax and unless he limits the change in response to future generations and response to global warm iing requiring de of birth do something he has shown little inclination for, leading a massive grassroots campaign to rally the american people and overcome the fossil fuel industry and its republican allies. what has the president done and realistically possible the next four years. not the first thing was fuel efficiency standards for vehicles, a very big deal, will save 6 billion tons of carbon going into the atmosphere in the life of the program. that was a big deal and cut that deal in the bailout industry and had them over a big barrel. he has done a lot of investment with the green energy renewables. he hasn't really talked about it. that's a problem not just about rhetoric, helping the am
and 71% of latinos voted, in fact, for president obama. obviously that's correlated. >> i think the real issue that no one is talking about is the fact that we probably will extend an h 2 aing aagricultural visa process. and we could have a second class of worker that can't leave their employer. that's a dangerous precedent. >> it's fraught with abuse. not like they had a great history with workers, that's a good point too. >> sarah, can we cut to the chase here. 2007, totally different political landscape, and we had many conservatives absolutely using immigration reform as a way to, frankly, penalize other republicans. 2013, the politics have changed. that's why you have more republicans who are a part of this whole deal. isn't that really the driving force here? why it will be a lot easier than it was six years ago? >> yes. that's what i said at the outset. the election changed that, and a good example is my colleague, marco rubio, who i think has taken a very courageous stand, he is now one of the leaders that will give cover to a lo of the republicans have taken the opposite positio
. >>> many in washington are still reacting to president obama's immigration speech in las vegas yesterday where he said now is the time to fix what he called a broken system. republicans are only willing so far to compromise on the issue. nbc's tracie potts joins us live. >> reporter: hi, mara. good morning. now on capitol hill begins the process what could be a tedious process of sorting out what is is different for the president's proposal after the speech yesterday and also with the bipartisan group of lawmakers, democrats and republicans came up with the broad principles here appear to be the same. beefing up the borders and the pass to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. but neither plan has full details at this point. and it raises a lot of questions, for example, how long will this immigration process take? lawmakers want to make sure border security happens first. the president did not mention that. so that could make a difference in how long it actually takes to get this path to citizenship under way. the other big issue, same-sex immigran
: denis mcdonough has been a trusted adviser to president obama counseling him on foreign policy issues during the 2008 campaign and later as deputy chief security adviser. he was in the situation room during the historic raid that killed osama bin laden. >> it was quite a team effort over the course of this. the president obviously leading that team. >> reporter: now the president is poised to name mcdonough chief of staff. the person responsible for helping make his second-term goals a reality. it's a key role that requires the right fit as captured by the popular tv show "the west wing." >> you got a best friend? >> yes, sir. >> is he smarter than you? >> yes, sir. >> would you trust him with your life? >> yes, sir. >> that's your chief of staff. >> reporter: the 43-year-old mcdonough grew up in minnesota. one of 11 children in what he's described as a proud, catholic family. he's kept a low profile in the administration but won fans as a man of integrity. >> denis traveled extensively with the president. when you spend day in and day out with someone in a high stakes very stressful
-chair of the campaign i would be proud to work for and with president obama. but i'm focused on issues like immigration and guns. we need to push for and support very important safe responsible gun legislation likes an assault weapons ban, universal background check, the straw buyers and gun trafficking. i'm focused on my job right now. we'll see what happens when it's all over. >> sounds like you're open to the possibility? >> t.j., i'm focused on the job. >> focused but if the phone rings. mr. mayor -- >> you're good. >> -- i do appreciate your time, sir. thanks so much and look forward to talking to you down the road. >> thank you, you, too. >>> 40 minutes past the hour. time now for today's fast five headlines. the "new york times" says the obama administration is considering supplying france with refueling planes in the fight against al qaeda linked attacks in mali. >>> also this hacking group you've heard the name before probably. called anonymous. the group now says it hijacked the web site of the u.s. sentencing commission today to avenge the death of aaron schwartz. he's the internet activist
to help republicans? nah, i don't think so. all right, into that and a whole mess of other issues but first here we get the latest, today's current news update, lisa ferguson standing by in our studios in los angeles. good morning lisa. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. today, president obama unveils his own new plan for immigration reform he's speaking in las vegas at 11:55 this morning and we're expecting this to be a more liberal plan than the blueprint the senate laid out yesterday. as bill mentioned a group of eight bipartisan senators have been work behind closed doors and finally released their new plan yesterday on capitol hill. some three basic bullet points from that plan, it would provide a path to probationary legal status for most of the country's 11 million illegal immigrants provided they do not have a criminal background. it would also call for a way to it's allow low-skilled immigrants like farm workers to enter the country but only when the economy is good and the details on how it would exactly go about that are still a bit fuzzy. it would call for a mandatory
communication. we saw it both in the success of the obama campaign in the fund raising arena and seen it in the ability of people to galvanize around a particular issue. that's what's so important about all of these things, the twitter and facebook. we use it extensively and it's a huge force. >> congressman yarmuth, thanks so much for taking the time. >> thank you, chris. >> as we watch gabby giffords continuing to come in. there is this level of emotion here. and really newtown took it to a level i don't think we've seen before. the parents have a piece in the "washington post," our country needs a new dialogue, one that doesn't follow the tired script of political squabbling. any improvement of our laws should not be decried as an attempt to take away rights. even those who lost the most are suggesting no such thing. >> do we need to see gabby giffords coming in and reminder of these 20 kids? >> apparently we do. there is a strong gun lobby and they oppose these things strongly. >> are they as strong as they were? >> i think so. there's been a lot of talk the nra is waining, i thin
to the spouses of gay and lesbian service members. >> that's been a big issue. we know that he's had a lot of closed door meetings trying to get some support. we know that president obama wants him in this position. who else is rallying to his defense? >> reporter: right now only one republican has publicly come out and said, hey, i'm going to support him. it's a republican senator from mississippi, but hagel has met with 60 senators. so he's sort of laid the groundwork and i think from what we're hearing, ultimately he's going to get the votes to move this through. >> all right, chris lawrence live at the pentagon for us, thank you very much. >>> about 16 minutes after the hour right now. i want to bring you up to speed on all the morning's top stories. here's christine romans with that. >>> a massive 1,000-mile-long line of massive and deadly storms targetsing the east coast. tornados, strong winds and flooding all threatening the south all the way up into new england. the damage is extensive. this is video from georgia, alabama, tennessee, kentucky. the storm killed two men, one in geor
. this is one of the most controversial issues. of course, a lot of republicans don't like this idea of creating a path to citizenship. president obama has worked to get that done. the big question is how can can the white house and members of congress work together to make that happen? on friday president obama met with members of the congressional hispanic caucus here at the white house. we also have a list of some of the senators who attended that meeting. they include senator robert menendez and javier becerra and ruben hinojosa and several others and president obama trying to get their input before he hits to road to travel to las vegas before making this large announcement. prior to the tragedy in newtown, immigration was going to be president obama's top priority during this second term. so we expect him on tuesday and the days following to really push his agenda with great force. craig? >> nbc's kristen walker from 1600 pennsylvania avenue on this saturday. thank you, ma'am. we'll check if with you later. >> thanks. >>> paul ryan is the latest republican offering his prescription for a g
thinking about it. so i think our covers are good. so we talk about what obama is doing in areas where he cannot get legislation through congress. it is important. it tells republicans in the house that this is a place where perhaps you can make a difference. regulations are only issued pursuant to legislation, so legislation comes regulation. republicans could stop or override some of these regulations, and maybe some democrats will go along. the epa and some other regulations are pretty hostile to small business, the energy production. and other are democrats or not really on board. alternative energy agenda that the obama administration is pursuing as well. and on health care, there are particular parts of obamacare that congress may be able to slow down or stop. the piece is mostly a report on what the administration is doing, but it gives guidance to congress. one thing republicans in congress needs to think about is what they can accomplish in by sized chunks. there will not change health care in a conservative direction in the next four years or reform entitlements. can they accomp
something. >> reporter: president obama, who met with giffords tuesday, has promised action on the issue. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. >> reporter: putting forth proposals that include an assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazines and the measure that is seen as most likely to go somewhere, background checks on all gun purchases, including private sales by owners. but there is resistance from gun rights advocates. wayne lapierre, the head of the nra, says the federal government is not enforcing its existing gun laws effectively and the answer is not more gun laws. >> none of it makes any sense in the real world. >> mr. lapierre, that's the point. the criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there will be a back grounding check. we'll stop them from the original purchase. you missed that point completely. i think it's basic. >> reporter: but can the president push a far-reaching law to tackle gun violence through congress? >> is he biting off more than he can chew? >> this is a president with a 60% approval
used in that capacity by the obama administration. i do not agree with him on all of the issues. i was troubled by his attempts to negotiate with bashar assad, who was very little credibility. he first voted against the war in iraq, then voted for the surge that made it possible for us to rescue a failing situation. but i do not think he will truly for -- to truly make the foreign policy of the u.s. any more than hillary clinton really did. this is one of the most centralized foreign-policy positions of ever seeing with the president and a handful of close aides truly making those decisions. i think john carey will be a capable the plant carrying out those decisions. host: there will be a live hearing today. one of the nominees, chuck keiko, nominated to be the -- chuck heigl, nominated to be the defense secretary. what do you think about? guest: there is no question he has been outside the mainstream of the senate. do not get me wrong, his hair was them in vietnam is something everybody should respect and his many years of service in the country, something for which i have the mon
hand, she was caught with a foreign policy president, barack obama, who's the most withholding and controlling since richard nixon. he wasn't going to delegate many of the big-ticket items. i think shea made it out of necessity. she identified her own issues. i call them planetary humanism -- women's issues, gend gender issues, social networking, internet freedoms, press freedoms. they're all very important, 21st century issue, but they're not the kind of issues that get you into the secretary of state hall of fame. a very fine secretary of state nonetheless. >> and the benghazi, libya, situation will follow her, yes? >> absolutely. >> yeah. polls show she is one of the most admired women if not the most admired woman in the world. is she the front-runner for the white house in 2016 if she wants it? >> you know, i can't figure out what i'm doing next tuesday. four years is a long time from now. but the reality is, yeah, because she is a star. she has the intuition, the political experience, she has bill clinton, she has 18 million voters from the post primary period that will v
and that is the fiscal issues, it's about jobs, jobs, jobs, i mean we win. that's what we need to stay focused on. >> i will say president obama was re-elected and that means in part to me that people are kind of into big government. >> i don't know about that. >> i disagree. >> i think many were going with the lesser of two evils with their choice at the ballot box, particularly independent voters but what they saw in mitt romney is they didn't have anything in common with him and didn't want to. and that was dividing up the country. 47% here, 47% there. let's have a fight over the nips and scraps and that's not a message that resonated. it's also a party that's extremely white, it was not reaching out to minority voters, insulting minority voter asnd with women voters. you cannot build a vole ligs when you're breaking down people like that. >> president obama was re-elected but also the house was re-elected overwhelmingly by republicans. >> democrats picked up some seats. >> we need to do a better job at reaching out to minorities articulating our message better. if you look at ted cruz in texas, he

and common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority and it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now have before us over the finish line poll after poll shows americans, democrats, republicans , independents support our solution to our broken emigration system. bipartisan support building in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this problem, there is no reason we should not get this done as soon as possible. the american people to solution. our economy requires a solution, and families across america are praying for solutions. that is the literal truth. >> thank you, senator reid. since i came to the senate 16 years ago and have been working of the immigration issue. i have never felt more positive about the prospects of real immigration reform and i do today. just this week in the last several days, the significant things that have occurred right here in this room, a bipartisan group of senators, a colleague, as well as senator menendez, the democratic side, mccain and gramm and rubio, the republican sid
